Two college seniors from the University of Rochester were rescued after being kidnapped just four miles from campus, The New York Daily News reports.
Nicholas Kollias, 21, and Ani Okeke-Ewo, 21, were abducted and reportedly held against their will early Saturday morning. The students are both from Illinois and were last seen near campus in a 2005 BMW SUV. They were later reported missing at around 6 p.m. Saturday evening.
A SWAT team entered the home of the alleged kidnappers and saved the students. One of the students was found with a gunshot wound to his leg; both were hospitalized.
Four people were arrested during the raid. The suspects are likely to face kidnapping and assault charges.
Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli told reporters more arrests are soon to follow. So far, a motive for the kidnapping has not been revealed.
A statement released Monday said school officials could not offer further details during the ongoing investigation. “We don’t believe there to be any further threat to the safety of our students or to community members here at the University of Rochester,” the statement said.
